Shaws Garden Historic District
St. Louis (Independent City), Missouri

Summary
The Shaws Garden Historic District is an 18-block area located in the south central section of St. Louis,
Missouri. The District is bordered by the Missouri Botanical Garden on the east and Tower Grove Park
on the south. The street boundaries are Magnolia Avenue on the south, Kingshighway and Vandeventer
Avenue and the alley east of Vandeventer on the west, DeTonty Avenue on the north, Tower Grove
Avenue on the east, Shaw Avenue on the south and Alfred Avenue on the east. The resource count in
the District is as follows:

Extant buildings were built starting circa 1890, the date at which the period of significance begins. The
period of significance ends in 1955 but there are some primary and secondary buildings built after that
date. By 1955, the heaviest period of development ended, and most buildings had been completed
before 1940. The district contains almost exclusively residential properties of similar age, form and
materials, most of which are multi-family buildings. These multi-family buildings include two- and fourfamily buildings with external entrances as well as walk-up apartment buildings. Almost all of the
buildings in the district are of masonry construction, with red brick being the dominant face material. The
districts buildings are in several styles, with Late 19th & 20th Century American Movements,
Craftsman/Bungalow and Tudor Revival being most prevalent. There are two private courts of singlefamily residences, Gurney and Heger courts, as well as groups of single-family homes on Alfred,
Magnolia, Shenandoah and Tower Grove avenues. Commercial buildings are limited to Vandeventer
Avenue, and many of those are excluded from the boundary, at one location on the west end of
Shenandoah Avenue and at the intersection of Shaw and Castleman avenues. Also on Vandeventer
Avenue stands Festus J. Wade School, a historic public school building. There are 214 secondary
buildings, mostly automobile garages, and most of these are contributing. The median strips on
Cleveland, Gurney and Heger Court and the two surviving round median parks are counted as
contributing sites. One median park is non-contributing due to alteration, and structures in two median
parks are non-contributing.
Setting
The Shaws Garden Historic District is located approximately five miles southwest from the Mississippi
River at downtown St. Louis. The site is largely flat, with a slight slope downward toward the southwest.
The District partially is bounded by two large historic landscapes: the Missouri Botanical Garden on the
east and Tower Grove Park on the south. These landscapes are planted and architect-designed historic
landscapes, and provide a park-like setting for much of the District. The north end of the District,
however, meets the raised lanes of Interstate 44. To the west on Kingshighway is another historic
residential area nominated to the National Register of Historic Places as the Reber Place Historic District
in 2011. West of Vandeventer is an area that is industrial and commercial in nature, and Vandeventers
character is not in keeping with the park-like setting of the rest of the District.

Shaws Garden Historic District
St. Louis (Independent City), Missouri

Throughout the District, there are mature street trees, defined tree lawns and landscaped front yards.
These features make the District abundant with planted flowers, trees and shrubs that connect it visually
to the Missouri Botanical Garden and to Tower Grove Park. The north end of the District is oriented on a
street grid that has a long east-west block east of Newstead Avenue and two north-south long blocks
(now truncated due to the interstate) to the west. Shaw Avenue runs continuously from Grand Avenue to
the east to Kingshighway and connects the District to other neighborhoods. Likewise, Tower Grove
Avenue at the east connects north as far as the Central West End and south through Tower Grove Park
to Arsenal Street.
Much of the district consists of the Shaws Garden Subdivision, with its irregular grid of curving streets laid
out in contrasting north-south and east-west blocks. Two median parks are in this plan. South of this
section is the Tower Grove Park Addition, which still bears traces of its original four-block grid pattern.
Two residential courts with median parks added later bring that grid into sympathy with the later
subdivision to the north. The presence of curved streets and two closed residential courts makes the
District wholly distinct in plan from any surrounding residential neighborhoods which are oriented to
rectilinear grid patterns. Within the District, there are alleys laid out parallel to the streets, even within the
nonlinear layout of the Shaws Garden Subdivision. All streets have sidewalks spaced from the curb to
form tree lawns. Throughout the District, these tree lawns are planted with mature street trees. Buildings
share common setback lines, and sloped front laws are landscaped with shrubs, small trees and
ornamental plantings. Throughout the District, the landscaped front yards and tree lawns create a
garden-like setting.
Due to the suburban setting, many houses have large yards that contain landscape features and
structures that are not accessible or even visible. All primary buildings and substantial outbuildings are
included in the resources count, as well as visible structures. However, many structures (like pools or
fountains) are not included. These features and structures do not have any significant impact on the
integrity of the District.
Integrity
The District retains a remarkable degree of integrity. The primary change in the District has been some
loss of integrity of setting. DeTonty Street today follows a straight line that does not represent the original
path. Due to construction of Interstate 44, the Shaws Vandeventer Avenue Addition lost a small part of
its northern edge as well as its original street grid. Additionally, there has been much demolition and
commercial construction on Vandeventer Avenue outside of the period of significance. Another impact on
integrity is the alteration of the median park at Shenandoah and Kingshighway from a round form to a
wedge shape; this park is now non-contributing. Outbuildings have been evaluated by examining the
presence of original roof forms, wall material, footprint and alley-facing vehicle doors.
Within the District, there are few non-contributing resources, and only seven non-contributing primary
buildings. Furthermore, demolition has been a minor factor. There are six single-parcel vacant lots
scattered throughout the District, located at 4606 Cleveland, 4304 DeTonty, 2027 Maury and 1829 S.
Newstead in addition to larger vacant lots at the northwest corners of Shaw and Tower Grove and Maury
and Cleveland and the southeast corner of Shenandoah and Kingshighway. Due to minimal demolition
and detracting alteration, the built environment of the District strongly displays its historic character as a
middle-class streetcar suburb. The Shaws Garden Historic District clearly retains integrity of feeling,
association, setting, location, design, workmanship and materials.

Shaws Garden Historic District
St. Louis (Independent City), Missouri

Summary
The Shaws Garden Historic District is located in the southwest part of the city of St. Louis, Missouri and
is locally significant under Criterion C for COMMUNITY PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT. The District
represents the fulfillment of the desire of the Missouri Botanical Garden under Director George T. Moore
to improve its surroundings through subdivision of property bequeathed to the Garden in the will of Henry
Shaw, and the clear vision of suburban development advanced by the Gardens long-time landscape
architect John Noyes. The resulting landscape is a rare realization within the city limits of progressive
suburban planning ideals implemented in contemporary landscapes in St. Louis County. An earlier
subdivision, the Tower Grove Park Addition (1870), was largely undeveloped when the Garden platted
the Shaws Vandeventer Avenue Addition north of Shaw Avenue in 1916. In 1923, the Garden platted the
Shaws Garden Subdivision to the west of Alfred Avenue, which created a harmonious and carefullydesigned residential enclave that utilized deed restrictions to mandate its character. Following this
addition, two parts of the Tower Grove Addition were re-subdivided as private residential courts, and
many buildings were built in that addition. The Shaws Garden Subdivision dominates the districts
landscape and sets its neatly-regulated physical and architectural character. Thus, the District
encompasses 18 city blocks built out largely between 1916 and 1955 as a cohesive residential streetcarserved neighborhood embodying progressive concepts in suburban planning influenced by local
subdivision plans by landscape architect Henry Wright as well as national ideals.
Development of the three subdivisions in this District are associated with residential development spurred
by the citys streetcar grid, the influences of Wright and the Garden City movement in local subdivision
planning, the use of deed restrictions to limit uses and building sizes and the rise of the private street.
The period of significance begins with the construction of the earliest contributing resource circa 1890 and
runs through 1955, when the last primary contributing resources were completed on Heger Court. This
period encompasses the full development of the Tower Grove Park Addition and the platting and
development of the Shaws Vandeventer Avenue and Shaws Garden additions. At the end of the period
of significance, through three major subdivisions and several re-plattings, the District became a uniform
residential neighborhood framing Henry Shaws gifts to the city, the Missouri Botanical Garden and Tower
Grove Park.
Early History and the Tower Grove Park Addition
The land that would become the District was first divided by French settlers in 1769 as the Prairie des
Noyers Commons, with the land divided into arpents running west from present-day Grand Avenue to
approximately present-day Kingshighway.i Settlers farmed these arpents into the 19th century, when
advancing urbanization led to sales of combined parcels to landowners who formed larger parcels. One
of these owners who would greatly shape the future of the area included in the District was merchant
Henry Shaw (1800-1889). After retirement in 1840, Shaw used some of his $250,000 fortune to purchase
a large parcel of land west of Grand Avenue in south St. Louis. Shaw established his Tower Grove
country house on this land in 1849. On an 1851 journey to England, Shaw visited the impressive gardens
of Chatsworth and returned to St. Louis prepared to dedicate part of his land holdings to establishing a
garden worthy of the citys future greatness.ii

Shaws resulting development would create in the next 100 years a cohesive landscape that would
include a major public park, a private botanical garden and several subdivisions in which elegant
residential buildings, churches and commercial buildings would rise. This landscape transformed the
prairie arpents into a fully-developed and unique section of St. Louis. In 1859, Shaw successfully sought
an act of the Missouri General Assembly to establish a board of trustees to govern his land as a botanical
garden; the new Missouri Botanical Garden opened on June 15, 1859.iii In 1868, Shaw deeded the land
for Tower Grove Park to the south of the Missouri Botanical Garden to the city of St. Louis (see Figure 1).
At the time, the Payne family controlled eight acres in the northwest corner of the park, which they would
not sell to Shaw. During Shaws life, the land in the District that he owned was set aside for expansion of
the Missouri Botanical Garden. However, owners of adjacent tracts subdivided them for largely
residential development shortly after the dedication of Tower Grove Park. North of Lafayette Avenue,
Mary McRee platted the 25-block McRee City Addition in 1868. Development of McRee City was slow
and by the publication of Pictorial St. Louis in 1875 the largely agricultural south part of McRee City was
virtually indistinguishable from the land south of McRee, which was owned by Henry Shaw.iv
South of Shaws holdings, the Payne family platted the Tower Grove Park Addition in 1870. Thomas
Payne had owned the land since the 1840s, and had once operated there a race track considered by one
newspaper account to be the citys first.v With the Tower Grove Park Addition and McRee City open by
1870, and Kingshighway on the west, the areas north and west of the Missouri Botanical Garden were
now constrained by real estate development. The four-block Tower Grove Park subdivision was bounded
by Magnolia Avenue on the south, Kingshighway on the west, an extension of Shenandoah Avenue on
the north and Alfred Avenue on the east. Tower Grove Place was laid out running east-west, and Maury
Avenue was created running north-south. The streets conformed to existing grids south of the Tower
Grove Park land and east of the Missouri Botanical Garden. South of Tower Grove Place, a wide alley
was built; one house would be built facing the alley with an address on Botanical Avenue. Botanical
Avenue ran east of the Missouri Botanical Garden and would have become the alley if extended
westward. The original Shaw School was built around this time at the northwest corner of the subdivision
facing Kinsghighway.vi Yet the lots within the subdivision remained large parcels until re-subdivision into
smaller parcels. No surviving recorded plats show that re-subdivision.
An 1891 article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch states that John V. Hogan had purchased the large parcels
of the Tower Grove Park Addition in 1890 for $65,000 and sold most of it to other owners and
syndicates.vii Henry Hiemenz, Jr., trustee of a local syndicate, purchased a section of the addition along
Magnolia Avenue for $30,000 in January 1891 and had plans for grading the site to make it attractive for
residential construction. This article states that the site was marked by a large ravine and uneven grade
as well as unsightly natural features. Apparently, the cost of improving the land was worth it; the writer
states that the prospect for profit more than warrants the outlay of as much as $12 to $15 per foot to
level the unwieldy site.viii The article demonstrates the impact of builder-developer real estate
development and the rise of streetcar-served city neighborhoods, by mentioning the lands proximity to
Reber Place to the southwest and the presence of the Union Depot electric streetcar on Arsenal Avenue.
According to the article, [t]hat section of the city is now held in high favor as a residence quarter and the

character of dwellings there are now being built out that way causes building sites to be sought at all the
time at steadily enhancing values.ix
The work of Hiemenz and other investors to tame the site was slow, and the 1903 Sanborn fire insurance
map shows only nine substantial residences all single dwellings -- built within the Tower Grove Park
Addition. One of these houses is the stone-faced 2 story dwelling at 4657 Tower Grove Place (c.
1894) and another is the 2 story brick dwelling at 4542 Tower Grove Place (c. 1890), the oldest
structure in the District. The most substantial earliest house is the Gudici family residence at 4518 Tower
Grove Place, a large Shingle Style residence built circa 1892. However, the handful of remaining
buildings from this period are scattered and stand apart from the rest of the Districts cohesive range of
styles, materials and forms (see Figure 2). Another factor in the slow development of the area was the
lack of direct access to a streetcar line. Arsenal Streets line was on the other side of Tower Grove Park
and not a convenient way to work for middle-class professionals. The lack of access did not last long
after Hogans land sales, however. In 1897, the Missouri Street Railroad Company extended a line down
Vandeventer from Tower Grove Avenue and south on Kingshighway.x The opening of this line, which
became known as the Southampton line after the subdivision in which it terminated, enabled large-scale
development of the area north of Tower Grove Park and west of the Missouri Botanical Garden.
However, by the turn of the twentieth century the Missouri Botanical Garden still was surrounded on the
west and north by undeveloped land (see Figure 3).
George T. Moore, John Noyes and the Missouri Botanical Gardens Subdivisions
The historic character of the District originated under the leadership of Missouri Botanical Garden director
George T. Moore and his trusted landscape architect John Noyes. The trustees of the Garden appointed
Moore as director effective May 1912, and he immediately set out to change many of the Gardens
practices.xi Moore, who served until 1953, changed both internal practices and the Gardens relationship
with the public. One of the earliest concerned the land west of the Garden, upon which the Shaws
Garden Subdivision would be platted. This land was long used for grazing of draft and carriage horses by
businesses and individuals, who paid a use fee to the Garden.xii For his own reasons Moore closed the
pasture, but his move coincided with the sharp rise of private truck and automobile usage. Moore added
Sunday hours, eliminated unneeded positions, added benches and drinking fountains to the Garden and
undertook many changes to the botanical presentation and research work of the Garden.xiii
Moore also had a keen eye for the quality of the Garden landscape, so much so that architectural
historian Carol Grove writes that Moore approached many of the Missouri Botanical Gardens
administrative matters with the artistic vision of a landscape painter, rather than that of a botanist, as
Shaw would have done.xiv The Gardens landscape planning was languishing under a contract for
planning with the company of Frederick Law Olmsted, which had produced a little-followed master plan
for the Garden in 1903. Moore brought a young and talented landscape architect, John Noyes, to serve

as an instructor at the Shaw School of Botany in 1913.xv By 1915, Moore made Noyes the official
landscape architect of the Missouri Botanical Garden, a position that he would hold until it passed to
Emmet Layton in 1955.xvi
John Noyes was born near Boston in 1887, and attended the University of Massachusetts from which he
graduated in 1909.xvii His early work may have included a stint in the office of renowned landscape
architect George Kessler, but prior to his arrival in St. Louis he worked for Boston landscape architect
Warren Manning.xviii In addition to his career as landscape architect for the Missouri Botanical Garden,
Noyes had a distinguished and significant range of accomplishments after establishing his own firm in
1920 and before retirement in 1954. Noyes designed site plans and athletic field for St. Louis esteemed
private St. Louis Country Day, Mary Institute and John Burroughs schools as well as Ladue High School.
Colleges that commissioned Noyes for site plans and landscape designs included Westminster College in
Fulton, Lincoln Institute (now University) in Jefferson City, and Southeast Missouri State College (now
University) in Cape Girardeau.xix
Significantly, and following his more prominent contemporary Henry Wright, Noyes would go on to design
several significant residential subdivisions in St. Louis County, including Wydown Terrace, Briarcliffe,
Frontenac, Dromara Lane and Pasadena Park.xx Perhaps his connection to the elite in St. Louis explains
his commissions designing the club house and swimming pool at Norwood Hills Country Club as well as
the grounds and subdivision at Westwood Country Club. Yet Noyes also would plan public parks in
Clayton and Webster Groves and work on several public housing projects later in his career. Noyes was
site planner, site engineer and landscape architect for the citys first public housing project, Carr Square
Village (1942) as well as for similar projects in Granite City, East Alton and Cairo, Illinois. Also during
World War II Noyes designed a 5,600-unit wartime housing project in Wichita, Kansas.xxi
Elected officials made sure to appoint Noyes to relevant posts at the local, state and national levels.
Noyes served on St. Louis Municipal Art Commission as well as a consultant to the Missouri State
Highway Commission (1935-1940) and to the National Resources Planning Board. Noyes work was
published in Landscape Architecture Quarterly, Parks & Recreation and other professional journals. In
1936, Noyes peers inducted him as a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the
professions highest honor.xxii
Noyes first major project at the garden was the design of a Shakespearean garden in 1916 to
commemorate the 300th anniversary of Shakespeares death in 1616.xxiii Noyes would go on to design the
Rose Garden and the Italian Garden as well as supervise many other projects at the Botanical Garden.
At the same time as Noyes employed his skill to the Garden landscape, he began taking an interest in

suburban residential development and evinced an ambition toward designing subdivisions. Noyes began
publishing in national journals articles and papers on landscape architecture, including an article on St.
Louis private places that appeared in the February 1915 issue of The American City, a planning journal
influenced by Ebenezer Howards Garden City movement that was the journal of the American planning
professions vanguard. Entitled The Places of St. Louis: An Effective Development of Residential
Streets With Building Restrictions, the article outlined key tenets of Noyes ideas about subdivision
design. Declaring that visitors to St. Louis are more impressed with the citys residential architecture and
great private places (Westmoreland, Portland and Vandeventer are mentioned) than anything. Noyes
favorably notes the components of the citys private places that make them unique. Noyes especially
notes the park-like settings, the central medians with plantings and, invisible yet most important, deed
restrictions for the residential lots.xxiv
One year after Noyes article on private places appeared, the Missouri Botanical Garden subdivided and
started selling lots in a new development to its north, named Shaws Vandeventer Avenue Addition. This
followed the Gardens decision in 1914 to subdivide a tract north of Lafayette Avenue named Shaws
Lafayette Avenue Addition (now included in the Liggett and Myers Historic District, NR 2009). Moore had
no use for these holdings, which were valuable sources of income for his programs. However, rather
than simply sell large pieces of land to investors who would subdivide them, Moore decided to have the
Garden plat the additions using Noyes hand. Shaws Lafayette Avenue Addition was quickly successful,
as noted in Moores 1915 annual report to the trustees: We have been successful in disposing of the
subdivision improved in the summer of 1914.xxv Two-thirds of the lots had already sold.
Moore and Noyes interest in subdivision stemmed not only from a desire to maximize profit, but from a
desire to have the Missouri Botanical Garden surrounded by subdivisions of high quality that would
enhance the Garden setting. The trustees had never considered such plans before Moore, but embraced
his vision. In 1916, the Garden platted the three-block Shaws Vandeventer Avenue Addition. The
addition was bounded by Vandeventer on the west, Lafayette Avenue (later DeTonty) Avenue on the
north, Tower Grove Avenue on the east and Shaw Avenue on the south. The western two blocks were
longer north-south due to Lafayettes shifting axis. Thus, the plan itself was fairly conventional. However,
the additions lots carried restrictive covenants to mandate street setback, lot width, building height and
use. Only residential buildings were allowed in the new addition.
With excellent streetcar access on Vandeventer, Shaws Vandeventer Avenue Addition was also very
successful. Moores annual report in the January 1917 Missouri Botanical Garden Bulletin stated that
during 1916 the Garden had sold 620 front feet for $20,020.00.xxvi One year later his report boasted that
there was full improvement of the addition except west of Newstead and that 2,100 front feet had sold.
Sales in 1917 represented 1,152 front feet sold for $36,000. According to Moore, soon Alfred Avenue
would be paved at a 50-foot width and sidewalks were to be built on Lafayette Avenue.xxvii The Gardens
role was limited to design of the plat. City government laid sidewalks and streets and constructed utility
lines, while private developers built all of the buildings. Botanical Garden was not a developer of
buildings in Shaws Vandeventer Avenue Addition.
Construction started in 1917, when several multi-family buildings on the 4300 block of present-day
DeTonty were built by developer-builders including V.A. Chinberg and J.E. Moran. These buildings faced

already-developed parcels across the street. Thomas Weege built several two-family buildings on
Newstead in 1919, at the same time that T.P. Saum developed the 1800 block of Alfred Avenue with 1 story bungalows on both sides of the block. Development along Shaw Avenue was less uniform, with a
range of multi-family buildings including two- and four-family buildings in the 4300 block and a mix of
single- and multi-family buildings on the 4400 block to the west. Construction dates start in 1919 and run
through the 1920s. The housing developed, however, was within a narrow architectural range influenced
by the Craftsman and Late 19th Century and Early 20th Century American movements. Multi-family
buildings were two stories with flat roofs. Single-family homes were almost all bungalows. Both types
have front porches with some exceptions. Dark and tapestry brick is abundant with wooden brackets,
stone accents, brick patternwork and even stucco providing stylistic elements.
The Shaws Garden Subdivision
Moore and Noyes definitive subdivision would be platted seven years later. In the meantime, nationallyrenowned landscape architect Henry Wright set the tenor for suburban subdivision design through some
key developments that certainly influenced John Noyes and other landscape architects in St. Louis.
Mentored by his employer George Kessler, Henry Wright (1878-1936) started practice in St. Louis in 1903
and worked in the city until 1923. Wright would move to New York to partner with Clarence Stein in the
design of influential New Town landscapes in the east, including Radburn Park, New Jersey (1928).
Throughout his career, Wrights work advanced principles that were influenced by the English Garden
City movement, the American City Beautiful movement and Wrights study of European villages. Wrights
ideals for residential planning included limited interior access to subdivisions, ample light and ventilation
through generous spacing of buildings, embrace of a sites natural topography and conditions, the use of
non-linear streets, ample green space including parks, medians and large front lawns and mixing of
socioeconomic groups through inclusion of both single and multiple family buildings. xxviii Wright believed
that rational urban planning was key to creating well-designed, garden-like communities free from
pollution and heavy traffic. Wright started his own practice in 1909, after having worked with Kessler on
parts of St. Louis first comprehensive plan in 1907.
In St. Louis, Wrights 1913 plat for Brentmoor Park (NR 9/23/1982) in Clayton brought these principles to
the attention of local developers. However, with its dramatic central ravine and exclusive population living
in large single-family homes, it was not a model for development of more mixed-income subdivisions.
Wrights 1917 plat for Hi-Pointe (NR 5/7/2005) in Clayton would serve as a better precedent, with its plan
constrained by the presence of Concordia Seminary, adjacent streets partially incorporated into the plan
and major thoroughfares, its embrace of natural topography, its seclusion of the interior through lack of
thoroughfares, its use of deed restrictions governing buildings and in its inclusion of areas for multi-family
as well as commercial buildings.xxix Wrights social planning for Hi-Pointe exemplified his idea that a wellplanned subdivision could be a self-sufficient community for the middle class.xxx Architecturally, the use
of curved streets limited views down streets and alleys and drew eyes toward the new buildings in the
subdivision.
In 1920, Wright designed the plat for Delmar Garden in University City (NR 2/16/1984). Delmar Garden is
also a precedent for John Noyes design of the Shaws Garden Subdivision due to layout and proliferation
of multi-family buildings. In fact, Delmar Garden was platted to exclusively have apartment buildings, of

which 85 were complete by 1924.xxxi Again, Wright made use of natural conditions and avoided any right
angles in the street plan. At Delmar Garden, Wright clearly showed his aversion to the twin evils of the
narrow lot and the dark residential alley.xxxii With a large former racetrack site, Wright was able to design
a street plan with minimal need to connect to existing streets except for bounding thoroughfares. Views
within the subdivision terminated in views of handsome modern apartment buildings or their green lawns.
By the time that Noyes would design his large subdivision for the Botanical Garden, both Delmar Garden
and Hi-Pointe would be almost fully improved and well-known in St. Louis. Many of the design traits that
make Shaws Garden Subdivision unique for the city can be found in these earlier projects in St. Louis
County.
In the 1910s, Moore was increasingly alarmed with the impact of smoke in the city on the Gardens
specimens, and was active in citywide efforts to pass a new anti-smoke ordinance. By this time, the
Garden was using some of the former pasture land to the west as space to grow new plants for
transplanting and display in the public section of the Garden. In his 1923 annual report, Moore stated that
the Gardens plants were increasingly showing the effect of having to live in an atmosphere more or less
saturated with toxic substances.xxxiii Moore deliberated relocating the Garden, but due to his desire that
the Garden always be accessible by streetcar and foot, recommended to the trustees that the Garden
remain at its site, but that plant-growing and arboretum functions be moved to a new site outside of the
city. Furthermore, the director recommended that the Garden subdivide the former pasture land to the
west as it had done before. The trustees assented to Moores plans, but due to the provisions of Shaws
will, Moore had to receive court approval to subdivide and sell the land west of the Garden.xxxiv The
Circuit Court ruled favorably on March 1, 1923. The proceeds had to be used to acquire land away from
smoke pollution to maintain the purposes for which the Garden owned the land to the west. Moore would
use the proceeds to purchase 1,300 acres in Gray Summit, Missouri in March 1925.xxxv This land is now
the Shaw Arboretum.
Moore hired Noyes through his private firm to develop the 13-block Shaws Garden Subdivision west of
the Garden on land bounded by Shenandoah Avenue and the Tower Grove Park Addition on the south,
Vandeventer on the west, Shaw Avenue on the north and the public section of the Garden on the east
(see Figure 4). Due to the diagonal line of Vandeventer and the non-parallel boundary of the Garden site,
the subdivision land formed a strange parallelogram that became very narrow to the north. Noyes,
however, used the irregular shape to express an elegant street plan that avoided adherence to the city
grid. Noyes followed Wrights principles in embracing the site slope and the constraints of the strange
shape of the land. One factor could be taken for granted, however. Since the city had passed a zoning
ordinance in 1918, Noyes and the Garden did not have to use deed restrictions as widely as in previous
subdivisions. The ordinance governed use, setback and building height.
Noyes plan buttressed the Tower Grove Park Addition, and at its southern end followed established grid
patterns. North Shenandoah Avenue, now Shenandoah Avenue, ran parallel to the existing east-west
streets. Maury Avenue extended north on a north-south axis. However, Alfred Avenue on the east was
laid out to follow the contours of the Missouri Botanical Garden site in an undulating curve. Maury
Avenue bent at an angle to parallel Vandeventer above Cleveland Avenue, which itself partly ran parallel
to Shenandoah before bending west of Maury. Flad, Flora, Russell and Castleman were somewhat

parallel above this, but each had a bend or irregularity that softened the city street grid. North-south
Portis Avenue was put in for a one-block run between Shenandoah and Flad. All of these streets were
technically extensions of existing city streets on the other sides of the Garden and Tower Grove park, but
brought into the subdivision through Noyes spatial logic. Blocks had customary 15-foot alleys
throughout. Streets were laid out at 50 feet wide, to accommodate automobile parking, except for edge
streets Shenandoah and Alfred, which were laid out 60 feet wide. The wide streets with their curves
meant few views down seemingly endless linear streets or alleys; views would be directed toward
architectural or natural beauty.
The curved contours of the streets and the resulting mix of long and very short blocks were not the only
distinctive parts of the plan. In keeping with his admiration for street parks expressed in his earlier article,
Noyes set aside three parks within the subdivision. At the west end of Shenandoah was a circular park,
and at the northwest corner where Maury met Castleman they flowed into a diagonal entrance with
circular park. These parks defined entrances into the subdivision from the major thoroughfare of
Vandeventer. Noyes also created an oval-shaped median park on a northern court off of Cleveland
Avenue that was intended as a private place of single-family homes (replatted in 1926 for multi-family
buildings by John G. Joyce of Joyce Surveying Company). These features gave the subdivision a parklike aspect appropriate for its site tucked between Henry Shaws great garden and park.
Of course, Noyes was not simply interested in planning the spatial order of the development, but in
influencing its architectural and social futures. Lots had irregular shapes, but all were given a generous
street frontage; the two standard frontages were 35 feet and 40 feet, with some lots on curves and in
Cleveland Court having widely varying frontages. As with other early twentieth century St. Louis
subdivisions, there were some deed restrictions to amend the citys zoning. One forbade certain houses:
That no building intended for human occupancy as a residence shall be erected in said subdivision of the
one-story, with or without a basement, flat roof type. There were also restrictions requiring approval of
the trustees of the Garden to allow commercial buildings on some parcels and to enforce a 20-foot
setback on Vandeventer. In keeping with practice being used in new subdivisions at the time, the Garden
also included a restriction allowing only members of the Caucasian race to purchase lots in the new
subdivision. Noyes suburban garden would be racially restricted until the Shelley v. Kraemer decision in
1948.
On August 3, 1923, the trustees submitted the plat to the Board of Public Service. The Board approved
the plat on September 25, opening the new Shaws Garden Subdivision to development. Within a few
months, in his next annual report, George T. Moore was ebullient about the subdivision and the decision
to sell the land. Moore was relieved that the stock of new plants would soon be grown free from the citys
poisonous atmospheric conditions and also that there would be no loss of publicly accessible Garden
land in the city. Moore stated that a crisis in the administration of the Garden has been successfully
passed.xxxvi Additionally, Moore noted that the new subdivision had sold enough parcels to be insured to
be successful.xxxvii
Soon afterward, the Garden took steps to make sure that the new addition fit better into the grid of the
Tower Grove Park Addition. On March 29, 1924, the Garden Trustees filed a plat by Noyes donating ten
feet north of Shenandoah Avenue to the city for widening of Shenandoah Avenue to a 40-foot width. The
houses of North Shenandoah Avenue would be built with garages facing this street, and the street soon
would lose its name and street designation to become an alley. The widening and removal of the street

designation more neatly fused the new subdivision into the old Tower Grove Park Addition, whose
development increased in the 1920s.
By 1925, Moores report to the trustees stated that the Shaws Garden Subdivision was gaining high
praise, although the sources are not named:
This tract, amounting to about fifty acres, was subdivided, improved with the necessary
streets, sewers, and sidewalks, and is now on the market. It has been pronounced one
of the best, if not the best, lay-outs for a subdivision planned for St. Louis within recent
years and the character of improvements is of an equally high grade. Sufficient lots
already have been sold to justify an active hunt for a suitable location for the out-of-town
garden.xxxviii
While the source of Moores cited pronouncements is unclear, it is known that John Noyes published the
plan in Landscape Architecture in 1925. Noyes achievement was clear: he had succeeded in creating a
residential landscape that matched the park-like setting of its surroundings with an inventive approach to
layout of a difficult property. Noyes created a subdivision plan highly unique for a residential plat intended
for middle-class streetcar commuters and not wealthy people.
The Shaws Garden Subdivision developed largely with multiple-family buildings with single-family houses
found on parts of Alfred and Shenandoah streets. Buildings were built by developer-builders including
T.P. Saum, J.M. Dice, Max Goldman, William Remmert, the May Building Company and the University
Building Company. All of the aforementioned developers were active in other city subdivisions at the
time, building similar single and multiple family dwellings. Most of the construction was completed by
1929, making the range of styles and materials in the new subdivision very complementary. Multi-family
buildings, all two or three stories with flat roofs, employed use of wooden brackets, hoods, stock terra
cotta elements, stone accents, clay roofing tile on porches and hoods, and patterned brickwork. Styles
included Craftsman, late 19th and Early 20th Century American Movements and Tudor Revival. Singlefamily houses tended to use similar materials but in a range of almost picturesque Tudor Revival and
Craftsman styles. Most buildings had front porches, drawing the relationship of the park-like
neighborhood setting into the buildings.
Large three-story walk-up apartment buildings were built on a few corners, including at 1949 Alfred (1929)
and 2103 Maury (1926). Two- and four- family buildings were built throughout, and include a striking
group of buildings on the west end of the north side of Flad Avenue from 1926; these have a very
progressive range of brick patternwork on their front elevations. The Cleveland Courts group of fourfamily buildings with restrained use of Craftsman details were built in 1926. Center-entrance walk-up
four-family buildings can be found, including on the south side of Cleveland west of Maury (1925): these
demonstrate the wide use of stock polychromatic terra cotta available from manufacturers catalogs.
Single-family homes with whimsical castellation and extensive use of brick and stone masonry detailing
abound in the 2600 block of Alfred, including three of the earliest buildings in the subdivision at 2606,
2611 and 2615 Alfred Avenue (1923).
Commercial buildings are few, but include the two-part block at 4468 Castleman (1926), with its tileroofed overhangs, and the one-part block next door at 4472 Castleman (1928), which makes use of a few
stock terra cotta medallions and a shaped parapet. Also during the 1920s, extensive development of the
Tower Grove Addition led to construction of buildings matching the architectural character of the Shaws
Garden Subdivision, including the large walk-up Benvee Apartments at 2616 S. Kingshighway (1924),

and single-family bungalow homes at 4459 and 4463 Magnolia (1923) that employed Craftsman details.
By 1930, the Shaws Garden Subdivision was a dense and built-out city neighborhood (see Figure 5).
One part of the character of the development was the abundance of private automobile garages built for
the burgeoning population of middle-class car owners.
One of the last major parts of this subdivision to be built out was Festus J. Wade School at 2030 S.
Vandeventer, which was completed in 1929. The school was named for banker Festus J. Wade,
president of the Mercantile Trust Company.xxxix The Board of Education purchased the entire block face
between Flora and Russell west of the alley. Of course, the entire Vandeventer side of the subdivision
was platted into small residential lots, but due to the presence of the streetcar line interest was slow.
With greater school-age population due to development of the subdivision and surrounding areas,
another elementary school was needed. Rockwell Milligan, architect for the Board of Education,
designed a handsome three-and-a-half story brown brick building with an intersecting gable plan. The
building utilized many elements of Classical Revival style, including double stone segmental columns
supporting a massive entrance entablature with pedimented window above. Wade School sat at the
center of the site, which was left open to accommodate play areas and anticipated school expansion.
Wade School provided the new subdivision with both a social amenity and a marvelous architectural
anchor at one of its borders.
However, Vandeventers eventual development was much different than the character of the school.
Development of the lots on Vandeventer came about through the loosening of deed restrictions so that
commercial uses could build there. Within the District on the block north of Wade School are a group of
illustrative one-story commercial resources: the one-story former filling station at 1904 S. Vandeventer
(1928), the Art Moderne commercial building at 1920 S. Vandeventer (1943), an automobile repair shop
at 1930 S. Vandeventer (1926) and a stone-faced building at 2100 S. Vandeventer (1949).
Gurney and Heger Courts: Private Places in the District
Around the same time as Noyes was completing the Shaws Garden Subdivision designs, private
developers created two private courts on the north side of Magnolia Avenue. These courts were based
on the private place model established in St. Louis by Julius Pitzman at Benton Place in Lafayette Square
(1868). Pitzman designed Benton Place as closed court with a center oval-shaped median park, and
drew wide residential lots around it. In 1879, Henry Shaw opened Shaw Place off of the south side of
DeTonty Avenue west of Grand Avenue. Designed by architect George I. Barnett, Shaw Place was
spatially similar to Benton Place and also was developed with large single-family homes.
Noyes 1915 article in The American City made mention of Flora Place, the wide private street with central
median parks that ran between the Missouri Botanical Gardens eastern gate and Grand Avenue six
blocks to the east.xl Completed in 1897, Flora Place was the second private place built to align with
Shaws Tower Grove landscapes. In 1888, Reber Place had opened aligned with Tower Grove Parks
western entrance. These linear places strengthened the garden-like surroundings of Tower Grove Park
and the Missouri Botanical Garden. Furthermore, in 1921, developer Robert Kirsch subdivided a large
parcel on the north side of the 4200 block of Magnolia as Hortus Court.xli Located east of Tower Grove
Avenue, Hortus Court featured ten Dutch Colonial Revival homes on a walking court oriented toward
Tower Grove Park to the south.

Shaws Garden Historic District
St. Louis (Independent City), Missouri

On January 3, 1922, William and Olivia K. Remmert filed a plat by the Joyce Surveying Company for a
private court of 21 lots on the north side of Magnolia Avenue west of Maury Avenue (see Figure 6). This
was a large undeveloped tract in the Tower Grove Park Addition. William Remmert was president and
founder of the Remmert Vacuum Cleaner Company and an investor in real estate development. The
development was called Gurney Court and was named for James Gurney (1831-1920), head gardener at
the Missouri Botanical Garden under Henry Shaw and later superintendent.xlii Gurney Court had a central
median park much like Shaw and Benton places. However, its development paralleled the architectural
trends found in the later Shaws Garden Subdivision to the north. All of the 20 houses built on the court
were large 1-story single-family residences in bungalow forms with Craftsman details and full-width front
porches. The harmonious court was as cohesive as Shaw Place had been in its time.
Following Gurney Court, in August 1922 businessman Frederick Heger, Sr. hired the Pitzman Company
to survey and subdivide two tracts of land on each side of Maury Avenue north of Magnolia Avenue.
Frederick Heger was president of the Mount Olive Building and Loan Association.xliii The design of
Hegers subdivision bore the name of Julius Pitzman, the designer of Benton Place and the recipient of
John Noyes praise in his article on private places. Pitzman devised a 14-lot court around a landscaped
median with rounded ends (see Figure 7). Maury Avenue would be closed at the alley line to the north,
and would become Heger Court. Unlike Gurney Court or Benton place, however, Heger Courts lots
would all be arranged perpendicular to the median, with no close of lots at the end. Heger and his wife
Olivia did not file the plat until November 17, 1923; the Board of Public Service approved the plat on
November 30 that year. The new plat for Heger Court extended Noyes landscaped suburban vision for
the Shaws Garden Subdivision toward Tower Grove Park.
Development of Heger Court came in two waves spaced apart. Three Craftsman-style bungalows were
built in 1922 at 2620, 2628 and 2632 Heger Court. These were occupied by Frederick Heger and his
brothers Louis and Edward Heger. A fourth house was built in 1925 at 2605 Heger Court, but the
remaining ten houses would not be built until the period of 1940 through 1950. These homes are
compatible in scale and materials to the earlier homes but diverge stylistically by showing the trends of
their age, when Colonial Revival details were popular. Nonetheless, Heger Courts completed
appearance fulfills Heger and Pitzmans plan of a landscaped court flanked by modest-scaled singlefamily residences.
Although not planned by the Garden or designed by John Noyes, the two private courts within the former
Tower Grove Place Addition served to alter that gridded landscape with a more park-like appearance
congruous with the Shaws Garden Addition. By the end of development in 1955, the group of
subdivisions from Magnolia Avenue north to DeTonty Avenue had become a cohesive and well-planned
suburban residential enclave bordering the esteemed Missouri Botanical Garden. Coincidentally, the end
of construction on Heger Court came near the retirement dates for George T. Moore and John Noyes
from active work at the Garden. The era had ended with Moores vision completed and Noyes planning
ideals fully realized.
